Historic conference about Parley P. Pratt

150 years have passed since the murder of Parley P. Pratt while on a mission in Arkansas in 1857. A historic academic conference entitled "Religion and Reaction: The Life, Timies and Legacy of Parley Parker Pratt" is scheduled for April 20-21, 2007 in Fort Smith, Arkansas where Jan Shipps, Susan Easton Black, and other prominent historians and scholars will discuss "topics and themes related to the man, his contemporaries, and their impact on history, theology, etc. for a conference marking the 200th anniversary of his birth and the sesquicentennial of his death in Western Arkansas."

This might be something that a lot of people in the area might be interested in, particularly those interested in Mormon history.
